Sparkadia - The Kiss of Death

Sparkadia - The Kiss of Death
Formed by childhood friends, 25-year-olds Alex Burnett (vocals, guitar) and Dave Hall, (drums) in 2004, the Sydney four-piece 'Sparkadia' became a reality with the addition of Nick Rabone (bass) and Tiffany Preece (keyboards, guitar, vocals) Together, they write modern pop songs, pop songs that explode and shimmer with choruses that never leave your head and hooks that floor you on the first listen. 'Postcards' offers up a dozen snapshots of life that meld bittersweet lyrics and floating melodies with a sunny spin on heartbreak.

"Many of the songs on this album are postcards I wish I had sent, and others are ones I really wish I didn’t have to send," says Alex. Each track was written in a different room in a different city over the past four years, before being affixed with a stamp and sent to the renowned Miloco Studios in London, where producer extraordinaire Ben Hillier (Blur, Depeche Mode, Doves) applied his deft production hand to give the album an expansive, cinematic feel.

About this track...

'The Kiss of Death' was created in a ridiculously rough form by lead singer Alex. After receiving relative approval from the band, they played a version of the song to Ben (Hillier) who loved it and about an hour or two later the recording was complete.
